Police in West Palm Beach are looking for two men suspected of robbing a daycare center with guns.

The director of Kids-r-Kreative says two men in hoodies and masks entered the daycare office at about 11:00 Thursday morning.

They pointed guns at the receptionists and stole her cellphone.

The director saw the men run southbound away from the daycare which is in the same complex as Mount Calvary Baptist Church at 1111 36th Street.

No one was hurt.

About 100 children were at the daycare at the time. The director says the classrooms are separate from the office where the alleged robbery occurred, so children were not in harm's way.

The director says she sent an email to parents alerting them of the incident.
